It was an absolute pleasure working with Maude and combining our creative direction. She's not only an insane athlete, but a creative thinker who inspired me in every step of the process. We wanted to create a piece that showed skiing as an art form.
My creative process is filtering all my ideas into a moment of clarity and simplicity. I love the duality between chaos and order when coming up with ideas and making art. I am inspired by seeing the art in all things and how we can make any task a creative one.
Joint efforts is combining forces from different creative backgrounds under one vision. Our different approaches and perspectives create a more dynamic result. It's so important to be inspired from all angles so we don't get stuck in one way of thinking. The possibilities expand when we join efforts.
Maude Found her in recommended songs on Spotify playlist and reached over Instagram... just like that, felt the song and thought it was perfect for the piece.
25-year-old Cameroonian-native, Los Angeles-based singer/ rapper/ songwriter Lorine Chia grew up between two worlds: one her family’s deep ties to her native country of Cameroon; the other the years she spent learning and adjusting to the American way of life and its music. Her upbringing and musical influences would prove to be an undeniable talent today, garnering Lorine Chia praises from the likes of Complex, Fader, and Billboard, while Pitchfork describes her as “plucked straight from a different era, but...ultra-contemporary.” Her contribution to her collaboration with Bad Boy/Interscope artist Machine Gun Kelly has been called “fabulously rich” by Rolling Stone.
